Why does Positivo Tecnologia calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA?

EBITDA comprises income before net financial expenses, income and social contribution taxes and depreciation and amortization. The calculation of EBITDA is not based on accounting principles adopted in Brazil, does not represent cash flow for the periods in question and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as an indicator of liquidity. EBITDA does not have a standardized definition and our definition of EBITDA may not be identical to or comparable with the EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA comprises EBITDA, and the portion of the investment subsidy booked under current liabilities and recognized in the result as the mandatory investments in R&D relative to said amount are amortized. The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is not based on accounting principles adopted in Brazil, does not represent cash flow for the periods in question and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as an indicator of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a definition and our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to or comparable with the EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA used by other companies.

Although the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not provide, according to the Brazilian Accounting Principles (BR GAAP) or the U.S. Accounting Principles (US GAAP), measures of the operational cash flows, Positivo Tecnologia management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to measure its operating performance. Additionally, the Company management believes that disclosure of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA can provide useful information to investors, financial analysts and the public in their review of the Company’s operating performance and its comparison to the operating performance of other companies in the same industry and other industries.
